Profile: Germen now has the fourth-best changeup whiff rate in baseball (minimum 200 thrown) instead of the first-best, and that's why he keeps getting picked up by teams. However, here's why he keeps getting dropped: no command and no third pitch. It's too bad, but unless you've got a knuckleball, it looks like one good pitch is not enough. Now Germen will ply his trade in Japan, and you don't have to worry about him any more. (Eno Sarris)
